Bronx (Highlight New York City). It is a county of
the state of New York, and one of the five metropolitan districts
(borough) of the city. County and district have the same geographic
boundaries. It is the northernmost district and is the only one of the
five that is not an island (or part of one, in the case
of Queens and Brooklyn) and is located on the mainland.
It was named after Jonas Bronck, a Swedish immigrant who was the
first to settle in the area. In 2002, the population was 1,354,068
The territory that currently forms the county of the Bronx belonged
to Westchester County.
In 1874, the western part of what is now the county of the Bronx was
transferred to the county of New York and in 1895 the eastern remainder
was transferred. In 1914, those transferred parts separated from New
York County and formed present-day Bronx County.
Bronx attractions include Yankee Stadium, home of the New York
Yankees, the Bronx Zoo, the New York Botanical Garden. It also includes
two of the largest parks in New York, Pelham Bay and Van Cortlandt.
The Bronx has the distinction of being the birthplace of Hip Hop.
In its cemetery are the graves of Duke Ellington, Miles
Davis and Herman Melvilla, among other historical figures. At the

Like the other counties in New York City, there is no county
government in the Bronx, but county courts and other authorities such as
the prosecutor do. Each metropolitan district in New York elects a
President but this office does not have much power, de facto. The office
of the District President (Borough President) was created with the
consolidation of the five counties, to balance the balance of these,
with respect to the central municipal government.
Each district president had a powerful role, stemming from having a
vote on the New York City Board of Estimate, the body responsible for
creating and approving city budgets and making spatial planning
proposals. In 1989, the United States Supreme Court declared this Board
unconstitutional, due to the fact that Brooklyn, the most populous
county in the municipality, had no more vote on the ground than Staten
Island, the least populated county in the city.
This constitutes a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the
Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, issued in 1964,
under the premise of one man, one vote.
The powers of the Board of Estimate were transferred to the City
Council (City Council, with 51 members, in charge of the legislative
power in the city), thus increasing the centralized power in the New
Since 1990, the District President has served as an advocate for the
county's interests with the mayoral agencies, city councils, New York
state government, and corporations. The president of the District of the
Bronx is Adolfo Carrión, Jr., the twelfth of them, since The Bronx
belongs to the city of New York.
The District Attorney for the Bronx (known as District Attorney, in
English) is Robert T. Johnson and has held the position since January 1,
1989, becoming the longest-serving district attorney in the history of
It also has 12 administrative districts, each served by a local
Community Board. These Boards are the representative bodies that collect
citizen complaints and serve as defenders of the residents of their
area, before the City Council.
Anecdotally, the official name of the "borough" is The Bronx, while
the county name is Bronx County (no article).
